We know, you’ve been waiting for this post! 😀

Today we have a pleasure to publish answers to our “5 questions to:..” from someone, who is a “dinosaur” in the rc-trial.pl community 😉 He is one of the people we know, that are the longest in this hobby. But – “Why we’ve been waiting for his answers??” – you may ask. Because he is the owner of the amazing KAMAZ 8×8, that you always ask about, when we post it’s picture! 😀

We know Radek for over 3 years now – he has a specific sense of humor, likes to make jokes on the course (especially, when I’m driving 😉 ), but all in all – we miss him if he doesn’t come to the Warsaw Weekend Meetings for long time (he usually has a good reason for that, but still..).

We’ll say it again – it’s a great pleasure to post answers to our “5 questions to:..” from a great RC maniac! Ladies and gents – say hello to Radek! 🙂

  1. How has your RC adventure started and what was your first RC?

From my young years, I was interested in and dreamt about radio controlled car, but as it was times of PRL [Polish People’s Republic], I ended with toy Ford Mustang from the early 80’s.

I remember I was dreaming about getting to a place, where I could learn about them and build, but back in the day it was also not easy and only in the middle of 2009, after searching for some kind of hobby for myself, I found Max’s video and his gorgeous Tatra 813 8×8 in 1:10 scale, with drive 100% as in original – and it’s not an usual solution in trucks 😀

In that moment I remembered my childhood dream and from the video I got to rc-trial.pl forum and that’s how it all started.

My first RC was Axial SCX10 Honcho KIT. I think it was the first one in Poland and I ordered it from the USA, as it was not available here. I liked him as it was great, really good thought was put into the construction, but unfortunatelly, as I was short on money, it became parts donor to Kamaz 5350 6×6.

  1. Which RC (that you own or owned) is your favorite?

I think my present Kamaz 6450 8×8, that I was able to bring to life thank’s to my friend Czayo, who designed and cut on CNC all needed parts of suspension of 8×8 for Axial SCX10’s axles. This is my favorite RC, as it’s simply amazing, even tough I have good memories with the previous Kamaz 6×6 as well as Land Rover Discovery 3 with independent suspension in converted chassis from ACADEMY STR 4 RALLY-F.

  1. What is your dream RC?

Hmm… Very good question, but I don’t think I know answer to it. Altough I sometimes dream about trying something totally different – Losi 5ive, but no money for that 😀

  1. What do you like the most in this hobby?

Opportunity to create RCs from the start, or upgrading, paddle in mud and driving in hard terrain. Also the best are meetings with people on national competitions or regional meetings. Thanks to this hobby I met tons of great people! Maybe there will be also international meetings and new people 😀

  1. What are 4 things that you always take on your RC adventures?

RC, radio and 2 batteries 😀
